Escaped Arkansas Inmate Gives Himself Up in Missouri

OCTOBER 13, 2006 - Posted at 8:06 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - An Arkansas work-release inmate who drove off

in a state van last week surrendered to authorities in Missouri on

Thursday. Forty-five-year-old Kenneth Stumbaugh told officials he

gave up because he was tired of being on the run.

Stumbaugh surrendered to a Dallas County, Missouri, sheriff's

deputy at Buffalo, Missouri, about 30 miles north of Springfield.

Stumbaugh was assigned as a van driver at the Benton

Work-Release Center. He dropped off a group of work-release inmates

in Benton about October sixth and never returned.

The van was found earlier this week, abandoned at Little Rock.

Since then, the Correction Department has stopped letting

inmates drive vans.

Stumbaugh was serving a 16-year sentence from Pope County on

forgery, theft by receiving, theft of property and

firearm-possession convictions. He would have been eligible for

parole in April of 2008.
